CLINIC SCHEDULE

RAVS is excited to be welcoming in the 2022 season with opportunities to bring more volunteers back out in the field! As always, the health and safety of community members and volunteers will be at the forefront of our planning process as we gradually resume our more traditional teaching clinics via a staged approach. Currently, the need to limit total team size based on community resources and public health requirements will limit the number of student volunteer opportunities available at this time. Additional opportunities are likely to be added throughout the year as local logistics allow. Please check back here and visit our Facebook page for updates on clinic scheduling and additional volunteer opportunities.

THE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FOR 2022 CLINICS
WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE FOLLOWING SCHEDULE:

Applicants from all backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to apply. Please check back regularly for schedule updates and new opportunities.

----- ADDITIONAL NOTES -----

Volunteer Selection:Assignments are NOT made on a first-come basis. All volunteers will be subject to a selection process based on year in school, prior experience and organizational need. Selection will be designed to provide a balance of experience and skill levels. New volunteers are encouraged to apply! Note that mid-summer clinics (June-Aug) have a much higher application rate. If you are available to participate in a winter, spring or fall clinic, these trips generally allow a greater chance of acceptance.

Attending Multiple Trips: Each trip posted this year will be a single week-long clinic opportunity. Volunteers are welcome to apply for more than one clinic and participation in two consecutive clinic weeks can be an excellent opportunity for students to maximize learning and skill development. Team size restrictions will significantly limit the number of available student positions this year though. Depending on applications and community logistics, students may be accepted for just one of their selected clinics.

HSVMA Student Membership: All student volunteers will automatically receive a complimentary HSVMA student membership. For information on member benefits and services visit www.hsvma.org
